I'm attaching an abstract from a big data entry used for recording pipeline fabrication and welding records. I need to find out the the spool number and drawing number which has some joints to be welded (A spool contains various joint numbers SW01,SW02 etc. if the corresponding column in Column "G" is empty the weld of that particular Spool is incomplete). I have the drawing numbers of pipe lines in Cell "B" and its Sheet number in Cell "C" and Spool Number in Cell "D". I need to find the excel function by which I can identify the all the drawing / sheet and Spool number for which welds are still balance
Also need to find out the number of Joints remaining to be welded in each Drawing/spool
Appreciate your support to solve this

Not sure i really understand your data. Are you saying that if column G is blank it is incomplete - so you could just filter on G for blanks?
"Also need to find out the number of Joints remaining to be welded in each Drawing/spool" - for this part where is the count of welds is it the number at the end of the SW? Where is the current count?
|WELD DETAILS||WELDING DETAILS||NDT||REMARKS|
|LINE No.||DRAWING NUMBER||SHT
|JOINT NO||FITUP DATE||WELD DATE||REP. No||ACC/ REJ|
|BT2-DOW-1485-2"-BAB3-N||A349-BRZ-BT2-D-BF2-DOW-1485||2 of 2||01||SW02||30-Nov-19|
|BT2-DOW-1358-6"-BAB3-N||A349-BRZ-BT2-D-PD9-DOW-1358||1 of 3||SW17|
Can you mock up manuall what you are expecting to see?

Hi, Thanks for your message. I have uploaded the workout I prepared using Pivot and Helper columns.
The original data file gets daily updated and new Drawings, spools and joints get added and against it the Fit up and weld status also entered. From this file doing manual filtering and verifying the Drawing & its spool which has still Fit up or Welding balance to complete is a cumbersome process.
I am able to get the answer by creating a Pivot sheet and running a formula in the main data sheet to cross check the information from the Pivot table. Since the Main table gets changed daily I wanted to find a simplified solution to get the Status which is appearing in "SPOOL FITUP/ WELD STATUS" column.
Idea is to Refer the data in Col "B" & "D" Verify if there is any empty cell in Col "F" & "G", If there is any empty cell in either of these columns, refer the corresponding entry in Col "B" & "D" and mark all of matching entries in Col "B" & "D" as 'INCOMPLETE'
